Of work and play.

In many ways the last two weeks have been, work wise, some of the toughest in the last 3 or so years. I had to fill in for 3 people that had holidays planned long ago, for a week for two at the same time! And worked turned out hectic around that time. Crises after crises, deadline after deadline.

Hence, I am exhausted today after stressing, working in the evenings and over the weekend. I am looking forward to a slightly more relaxed week. I hope. Today I did the presentation for the big one, and it went well. Now the really hard work on it begins. I wish I could tell you what I am doing, but if you live in Pretoria, big things could be happening in a shopping center near you.

I am happy to report that I have survived really done well on another solo weekend. Hunter was exploring the Pilansberg and recharge the batteries. We seem to have our pace and rhythm when Hunter is not around and although I do not seem to get much done in terms of house etc, we are all happy and content. But gosh, it is nice to have him back!

Our neighbors had a Bollywood party on Friday night - loud Bollywood music blaring and lots of shouting and cheering. Kept the little boys awake a bit but after they stopped at 11pm (really I can not complain) we all had a good sleep. I wish I could see what was happening - it sounded cheerful although at the time, I was all but smiling. I was cursing... Did I mention that it is good to have Hunter back?


  1. wow you sure are coping with lots...
    I was told MS could be caused by too much take care of yourself..stress is not a good thing...and make sure you supplement.

  2. Sounds like you have a keeper there - but we know that already.

    Glad that your stressful period is now hopefully over.


  3. LOL! Yes it seems good that Hunter is back!

    We are invited to a Bollywood party next weekend and are supposed to dress like our favorite B/Hollywood star...don't know whether we will accept.

  4. Gosh, you've been working hard - I can take that for a bit (less than a week) and then i totally veg out.

    my brain just goes dead :)

    it is good to have them back, isn't it?

    here's to a slower week.

  5. Sounds like a trying time!

  6. Great that you are able to juggle... ;-)
    Hope the rest of the week is a breeze!

  7. I'm so very curious!
    (Have I mentioned that I am in Pretoria!!) Hope you are planning to blog about all this excitement very soon!

    So glad Hunter is back :)

  8. Ag Lettice - wish I could, but these things take time.

  9. Hope this week is calmer and smoother both at home and work!! Hang in there!


So what's on your mind?
